5:25 pm
carolina.he was convicted in 2002 of taking indecent liberties with a minor.then in 2009, a new state law prohibited sex offenders from accessing sites like facebook, youtube and new york times, which have online forums, where people interact.when packingham was caught with a facebook account in 2010, he was arrested.he's now challenging that ban . saying it's a violation of his first amendment rights and taking his case all the way to the supreme court on monday.what's unclear, and i think the law is still trying to figure this out, is where sex offenders can be online.stephen balkam of the family online safety institute -- sees too many parents taking a hands-off approach.parents are using digital devices as nannies. child safety experts tell parents to be in the know, talk to your kids all the time, but going too far could hurt open communication. friend and follow your kids, but don't stalk them online. if you stalk them, they're more likely to go underground. every parent we spoke with said child molesters should be barred from social media.but georgetown law professor rebecca tushnet ácould see the court overturning at outright

6:20 pm
outcome. you are looking at video of the "marin airporter" building from about 2 a-m. a white s-u-v backs up to the building and someone gets out. and here is where that someone goes. that is a guy in a hoodie carrying some sort of rope or cable. he then ties it around the atm... after that is done... he leaves and goes back to the waiting s-u-v. it is pretty easy to guess what happens next. the vehicle yanks the a-t-m right out of the building. you see the end result from this video. this next part may be a little hard to believe considering how big an a-t-m is. san rafael police say the suspects picked the machine and loaded into the back of the s-u-v. unfortunately we do not see on this video. that is no easy task and explains why police think the two men tried to steal a trailer earlier. as for the a-t-m... it was
6:21 pm
found earlier today in richmond. the suspects that stole it... they remain on the run. steve? you might have heard a few rain drop late last night in the bay area. we can tell you that storm system that moved through dumped snow in some unexpected places. this is camino in el dorado county where they are not use to seeing snow on the ground. camino's elevation is just over 3-thousand feet. residents say the snow certainly caught them by surprise... especially hearing snow plows running at three in the morning. dry weather will return by tomorrow for our entire
